Last week, writer Stefanie Williams wrote a piece for the Huffington Post where she talks openly about sex, and gets copious amounts of hate mail for it. Recently, strangers have been writing her calling her a “slut,” and Williams addresses these comments in the article. She notes the double standard between the sexes, claiming that men who enjoy sex are not often humiliated and berated as women in similar situations are.  Williams was inspired and uplifted by a recent episode of Aaron Sorkin’s HBO series The Newsroom...

Like so many others, my life revolves around my dog. My dog Remy’s life, however, revolves around fetch. I am woken many mornings by a joyous bouncing of her rubber orange ball, so (naturally!) I am always on the lookout for new innovations in the field of fetch.  This is a big one, ladies, so pay attention.
